Emerging from the COVID-19 pandemic, we are entering a world that is more digital and flexible than ever before. Companies have operationalized remote-working arrangements, and in this environment, companies will need to develop internal investigation protocols to improve their detection capabilities for fraud and illicit conduct. Companies may want to consider use of cases for artificial intelligence (“AI”) technologies to increase the speed with which investigations are conducted, and reducing the cost of conducting investigations.
Recently, the adoption of AI technologies by corporations has more than doubled. On average, corporations now have three AI programs embedded in their operations. This increasing usage of AI systems also introduces an interesting question with respect to corporate internal investigations—among other things, can AI programs be utilized to drive efficiencies in the investigations process?
